Feelings in 2016

Let’s talk about them. At times, I lie awake and am just overcome with certain sensations. Feelings of powerlessness are overwhelming at times. I remember, in sixth grade, I went to a party at ...

Star Trek in 2016

I wish, I really wish, that I had watched Star Trek TNG when Amanda told me to twelve years ago. I wish I had watched it at an even younger age, to be honest. When I think of television shows w...


Good song. Check it out. This year is not a good year. I’m going to be thirty. I’m living in the ass crack of Japan. I’m broke, I’m fat, I’ve not accomplished literally anything I had hoped ...


Sadly, this is going to be a break in the usual list of what I’ve done. I can’t give day by day accounts as my vacation was so long and dull that very little of note or merit really took place o...

December 18th through 22nd in 2015

Well, the weekend came and went, like so many a terrible boyfriend, and I’ve stories to tell of it, like many a terrible girlfriend. Friday evidently happened as I have distinct memories of Satu...

December 16th through 18th in 2015

In looking back over my last entry, I’m amazed at how it feels like it was in a different world. Such is life, one supposes. The 16th finished without anything of particular note happening. I’m...

December 15th and 16th in 2015

Yesterday, the 15th, went rather dully. As was to be expected. I had no classes, and relatively few notebooks to grade, which wasn’t a bad deal. I got a lot of work done on the role playing ga...

December 9th through 15th in 2015

December 9th through 15th. It’s strange to think that it’s been a week since I updated. Well, nearly. Let’s fix that. On the 9th I had Ebihara Sensei, which was dull. I don’t remember much of...

December 4-9 in 2015

These entries are getting further and further apart, and I don’t like it. It reflects poorly on my mental state. Which, as my readers are by now aware, is not so great to begin with. Still, th...

December 2nd through 4th in 2015

Before I get any further, I want to mention something briefly. It was a small thing, it shouldn’t bother me. It really shouldn’t. But it does and it is. Last night, on Tinder, I superliked a g...

December 1st through 2nd in 2015

Well, yesterday things got a bit better, though not a great deal. I still feel awful about most everything, but it’s not so oppressive. I have found, for some dumb reason, that nicotine tends t...


Yesterday I went home sick. Due to a scheduling error, I had no classes, and I felt terrible. I came into the office, corrected a stack of notebooks, and asked if I could be allowed to go to th...

24th through the 30th in 2015

I’m struggling to remember much of what happened. Nothing of note happened on Tuesday, though I was slightly improved by the end of the day. Physically. I didn’t clean much or exercise, though...

November 17th through 24th in 2015

Well, it’s been a week since I posted. Here’s a rundown of what’s happened. I didn’t end up buying the dehumidifiers. I was advised that they’re better to get in Sendai, and I figured that I’d...

November 13th-17th in 2015

November 13th through 17th. I don’t really remember how most of the 13th went, which leads me to believe that nothing of significance happened. It appears, based on Myfitnesspal records, that I...

Perspective in 2015

My friend Lauren just made her Carnegie debut doing the barcarolle from Offenbach’s Tales of Hoffman. And I’m an English teacher in rural Japan.

November 12th-13th in 2015

Well, let’s see, what happened yesterday (the 12th). Well, Yamasaki was a freaking hit. I love it there. The magic didn’t go over as well as hoped (with the 6th graders I botched one trick, an...


November 12, 2015

November 11th-12th in 2015

Well, on the 11th, I impressed the office with the two very simple card tricks that I’ve learned in preparation for teaching at Yamasaki today. So, that was nice. I also impressed a few Miyachu...

November 9th-11th in 2015

November 9 finished pretty dully. Eikaiwa, some form of dinner, a walk, some guitar practice. The usual. I did end up writing the basics for a song, for the first time in a long time, which fe...


Wednesday the 4th, I hurried home, then went to Plasse and 7-11 for food. I ate, quickly, donned my exercise clothes, and went to Eikaiwa. It was fun, but not of special interest. Then, I went...

October 28th-November 4th in 2015

Yesterday went off pretty well. In the course of the school day, I escaped from my desk repeatedly to take walks in various abandoned corridors. I hit 10K steps on my way home. Then, I drove t...

October 23rd through 28th in 2015

The remainder of Friday passed without any memories having formed. Yet again, due to Ebihara’s absence this time, I had no classes. She was still out with Pirate-itis. The eye infection that f...

Oct 21st through 23rd in 2015

Oct 22nd. Last night, I had two dreams that were memorable. Only one of which I now remember. Which bothers me. The first (the one I remember) happened in my living room as I slept, waiting t...

Oct 20-21st in 2015

October 20th. As a side note, it occurs to me (after having written that last entry) that I forgot to write something that occurred to me yesterday or the day before. As it turns out, Amber bro...
